The Memories for Kids (memoriesforkids.org) Guild will be hosting a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta on Friday, May 5. It will be a day to celebrate their sponsors and donors, family memory recipients and the work and mission of Memories for Kids to create lifelong memories for children who have a parent with stage IV cancer.
At 10:30 a.m., a virtual mimosa toast will kick off the day, followed by sponsor shout-outs, real-time updates on the donation tracker and videos of past memory recipients. The day will culminate with an in-person Cinco de Mayo happy hour starting at 5 p.m. at Champions Run, 13800 Eagle Run Dr., in Omaha.
Families who receive a memory are able to take a break from the cancer diagnosis and spend time together, creating memories and briefly relieving the sadness of living with a terminally ill parent. Families have enjoyed trips near and far, to Okoboji and Honey Creek, IA, Colorado, California, Wyoming and Florida.
Memories For Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Their mission is to create lifelong memories for children who have a parent with stage IV cancer. For more information, go to memoriesforkids.org.
